Gazprom happy with rig for Yamal field

By Sarah Hurst
Uralmash-VNIIBT, a subsidiary of Moscow-based oilfield service company and drilling rig manufacturer Integra Group, has completed the construction of its BU 4200/250 drilling rig for Gazprom’s Bovanenkovskoe gas field on the Yamal Peninsula. The rig has been named Ekaterina, after the city of Ekaterinburg in central Russia where it was built. Uralmash-VNIIBT will supply a total of 11 rigs to Bovanenkovskoe under the contract.

“As a customer we are completely satisfied with the work done by Uralmash,” said Andrei Rossinsky, managing director of Gazprom’s drilling subsidiary Burgaz. “Before we started our cooperation we conducted a detailed review of the design, engineering and production capabilities of the project team and were entirely satisfied. We have a positive impression from joint work with this contractor, product quality and time of delivery, which is currently ahead of schedule,” he added.
